Unheard keys
Messing around with unusual clean moods and cringing note clusters. Composers are less and less scared of deriving from our comfortable same-floating mood. Especially keyboard instruments are a great tool for experimenting with sound. Whether its a slightly adapted organ or a micro-tonal tuned piano, composers are suddenly  becoming sound wizards. In this broadcast of Feature, some recent CD releases of unusual and unheard music on keys. We hear the works of Aliona Yurtsevich, Peter Adriaansz and David First’s extraordinary World Casio Quartet. And the integral piano works ‘just intonation’ ‘Six Primes’ (2014) by American Chris Brown.
